SOURCE: Don't know how to install new string on Echo SRM 2400

Cut two separate pieces of string, about 7 ft. each.

Stick the end of the line in the hole on the inside of spool.

Wind clockwise onto spool, putting the line that is closest to the ground on first.

Once you have winded this piece on, lock the last 4 inches of line through the slits on spool.

Repeat process for second piece of line, locking the last 4 inches in slot opposite the other locked in piece.

Put the spool on the trimmer, feeding the end of lines through either hole on trimmer.

Before you push the spool all the way on, pull the strings out of the locked position.

SOURCE: Echo srm-225 string broke off inside of the spool.

I solved the problem myself. I found the manual online and followed the directions that were given. Having the manual helped because it allowed me to know how to open up the spool without damaging it.

SOURCE: I have an echo weedeater srm 261t it will start and idle but dies when I give it gas.

nichodemus, you can thank the epa for this. All of the 2-stroke handhelds now come from the factory set up very lean. Almost every new 2-stroke that I have bought in the past few years has needed a carb adjustment, both on the low speed needle and the high speed needle. There are tamper resistant plugs over the adjustment screws on most carbs now. Unless you know what you are doing, the dealer will have to do this.
